insurance. >>> this week marks the 48th anniversary of the third and decisive civil rights march from selma to montgomery, alabama. harry belafonte recruited tony bennett to march with him it happened has marchers tried to cross the bridge, known as bloody sunday. the message of civil rights still permeates today. >> selma was different, that they were willing to kill, bomb, burn, destroy, so to ask our people to go there was a whole different game. >> he remembers the selma to montgomery marches in 1965. 50 miles had to be covered, but the real obstacle was hate. not along at 600 marchers began on sunday, march 7th, police brutally beat them, driving them back to selma. >> when bloody selma happened and then dr. king decided to march again after it, what was the mood? >> the mood was the mood was rebellious. the question is, what do we do in the face of this kind of rage and this kind of mayhem. the bottom line was that we go back as often as necessary. >> belafonte, enlisted by dr. king to bring artists into the movement, convinced the likes of joan baez, paul newman and marlon brando, bu
like this. it's a civil rights case, it seems like that would be the legacy that they want. but more curious things have happened in this court. let's go to doma for a second. >> the importance of doma says the federal government cannot deny federal benefits to people just because they are involved in a same-sex marriage. every single issue we are concerned about, whether it's lbgt worker's women boment baum care, all of those issues will be played out in the context of the immigration bill. in my point there is no point of bringing people out of the shadows only to make them second class citizens. it's all of us liberty and justice for all that has to happen. >> michael: yeah "politico" has an article out saying that there are these republican -- big doers in the republican party, that are going to give a lot more money if republicans start taking a stand that says -- that legalizes gay marriage in america. how big of factor is this, and do you believe it? >> i absolutely think there are gay republicans, some of them are my friends, that say it's tough for me.
.org/possibilities. >>> tomorrow, the supreme court will begin hearing arguments in two of the biggest civil rights cases to reach its docket in years, if not in decades. up for consideration, doma, the so-called defense of marriage act, and california's proposition 8. as the court prepares for an historic moment, more public figures are weighing in. we can now add senator claire mccaskill of missouri and senator mark warner of virginia to the growing number of current and former lawmakers throwing their support behind marriage equality. senator mccaskill wrote, "i have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. while churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry." senator mark warner announced his support for marriage equality in a facebook post. "i support marriage equality because it is the fair and right thing to do." one of the two lawyers arguing against california's prop 8, david boyce, has predicted vark victory. >> i think we're g
-- >> yes. and civil rights. he said to all of them, i agree with all of your positions. i want all of your things. but i have to tell you something, i'm not going to be able to do it. and i'm not going to do it. you're going to have to make me do it. he said that to them, make me do it. so fellow americans, that's our job. if we are calling ourselves citizens, that means we are participants in democracy. it is not that they sit back and they sit in some hall some place. we are the ones in charge. they are our servant. they are there to serve us. if they don't hear from us, then you know, who is going to win out are the money people. the gun manufacturers, national rifle association, people that grease the palms. that's who will win out. but this is what the nra is scared about tonight and gun manufacturers. there's a lot more of us than there are of them. >> no doubt. so they won't be able to hold us hostage. let's talk about something else you're doing, because i want to get this in. first i thought you were making house party part 4 but i discovered that's not what is going on. you are g
america's civil rights leader, who was assassinated trying to fight for civil rights in honor of the israeli leader, yitzhak rabin, who was assassinated trying to fight for peace. it's both a symbolic way of the president saying, i deeply understand the israeli struggle, and i also deeply believe that it's worth sacrifice and hard work to continue to fight for peace. quite a way to end his trip. >> quite a way, indeed. jessica yellin, live this morning, thanks for being with us. ahead on "starting point," the nra turning its sights on a new new york gun control law. is this measure unconstitutional? we're going to get reaction from aurora shooting survivor stephen barton. >>> and a 15-year-old girl is trapped when burglars enter her home. >> hey, bring the bucket over here. >> okay, don't talk. >> bring it over here. >> how she survived in her own words. next. you're watching "starting point."

connected the future of israel to these young people, to the civil rights movement. in fact, to his own experience, saying that it's the promise of freedom, that they have to deal with peace, and he was cheered. there was one heckler, but he was overridden by the cheers, saying that their future is really in their hands and they have to deal with the palestinian question. only a democratic israel can remain as a jewish stated and fulfill the promises. i think he hit every note in talking about the promise of israel but also he did give some very specific messages. he repeated his warning to the assad regime not to dare use chemical weapons, which are of course a direct threat to israel as well, saying that the united states will respond. and he made a very strong iron-clad commitment on iran, another thing that israelis want to hear. >> you know, interesting you mention the heckler and you talk about the charm offensive. i believe it has been called operation desert schmooze by "the atlantic." he handled that very well. he got some laughs when he said, i wouldn't feel comfortable here i
. which moses did in the bible and dr. king obviously did here in america. to lead the civil rights movement. so i thought it was again, very sincere from president obama, and resonated a lot, i know jewish americans, i would guess with african-americans, also guess more broadly, with most americans, for whom the bible is still their favorite book. >> yesterday's speech when he was speaking to the students yesterday, i mean, personally i thought he hit it out of the park. there was so much applause there, he made so much common sense and i feel like he really struck an emotional tone and tried to connect with the people in the audience. how do you feel about what he said and do you think his words will resonate for some time to come? >> i thought it was an excellent speech. and yes i do think, i hope certainly that his words will resonate for some time to come. this was really a brilliantly constructed visit to israel. obviously he had long and apparently very constructive talks with prime minister netenyahu and with prime minister simon perez. but for the major address, he chose no
like this? avery freedman is a law professor and attorney specializing in civil rights. he's joining us right now from cleveland. good to see you, avery. >> hi, fredricka. nice to see you. >> obviously the anonymous call by someone appalled with this facebook pose of an 11-year-old with a supposed assault rifle. >> it's very interesting. i think it's an extraordinary case because until such time as vice president biden and certainly the congress actually gets to the point of outlawing such weapons, they are legal. and in new jersey the question really became is it unlawful for a child to be posed in a facebook photograph. so what the local officials did, fredricka, is there was a raid on the house of police and children services. once the owner of the home, the father of this child called his attorney, the attorney says you've got to get out of the house until you get a warrant. so law enforcement left. it's this convergence of government trying jitter ri about the guns in the wrong hands and protect against the right of search and seizure and first amendment right of expression. >> so
we're going to win 5-4. i think this is a basic civil rights issue. i don't think this is a kind of issue that will divide the court the way some other issues divide the court. >> do you think it's possible the court makes a decision that doesn't resolve the right question? in other words, it doesn't resolve whether there's a right to marry? >> they could. there's a technical issue called standing that's raised here and the court could decide that the defendants don't have standing. that would result in allowing marriage equality in california because it would affirm the district court but it would not have any general applicability. >> we will be watching, mr. boies. thank you for being here. we're going to take a break. more from our roundtable as we get reaction to the gun debate that you've heard here this [ male announcer ] this is kevin. to prove to you that aleve is the better choice for him, he's agreed to give it up. that's today? [ male announcer ] we'll be with him all day as he goes back to taking tylenol. i was okay, but after lunch my knee started to hurt again. and
're right the mental health system needs to be fixed. the civil commitment laws are in a mess. every police officer knows that. we can't even, as i said before, i've been working for 20 years to get those adjudicated, mentally incompetent and dangerous, into the national check system. we're still trying to get that done, and we need enforcement of the federal gun laws. we want to do the real things that make people safe. i mean, what's appalled me about this whole debate is how little it's had to do with making people safe and how much it has to do with the decade agenda to attack the second amendment. >> bottom line. will president obama sign a new set of gun control measures? >> i hope we end up signing something that updates the system and gets those mentally incompetent and adjudicated into the system. we forced the administration somehow to enforce the federal gun laws. i know they don't want to do it but they ought to do it. it's their responsibility. that would make people safe. put programs like project exile in every american city where if you're a drug dealer, a gang member, or a
of post civil rights era generation. to talk about that experience, related to the palestinians and appeal to young israelis, that's the broader message here. >> yes, i think we're a long way from cairo, you know. i think what president obama and his people and his staff understood that in israel, you have to touch the public opinion. and then the leaders especially been minimum n benjamin netanyahu will follow. this man walked back from lots of principles just to get the soldier back. netanyahu was very, very attuned to the public opinion. so i think they understood they have to grasp the young generation, the people of israel. i think president obama did that from the very first moment he stepped down in israel. you know he was off that plane, he took off his jacket, he was informal. he hugged every kid he saw on the way. he first he took netanyahu, he talked about you know his wife, his late brother. his kids. and today he took the israeli public. but you know, i'm not sure because i was listening to that speech and i was asking myself, was it the caring parent giving a pep talk to his
, would we have allowed mississippi in 1960 to determine the civil rights of african-americans? i think the answer is absolutely not. i don't want any state telling me yes or no. i want the federals telling them to say yes. >> thank you both. >>> next, the new green giant. dylan ratigan gives back to the community and america's bravest. stay with us.

it comes to human rights, civil rights, and equality, i don't believe we should have the left versus right. these are moral issues. these are issues that go to the heart of what human beings, who we are and what we should be about not toward the partisan politics but like everything else it's going to get played out in a partisan atmosphere but i would hope we respect the individual people who through no fault of their own just are trying to live their lives and not be tortured or be subjected to these type of conversion therapies. >> donna and ari flish, thanks very much. just ahead, did the u.s. secret service accidently fire a weapon near iran's president when he was in new york? and why would iran keep quiet about something like that? stand by. if youthen this willbrids arbe a nice surprise. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max come. c-max go. c-max give a ride to everyone it knows. c max has more passenger volume than competitor prius v and we haven't even mentioned... c-max also gets better mpg. say hi to the super fuel efficient ford c-max hybrid.

engage, a large part of the population wouldn't engage with civil rights. then they said we have to find a way to do this. there's no reason why immigration reform and rand paul says hispanics are natural republicans which they used to say that about black people too. lost of people in america have faith in family and are not republicans. republicans should be natural to immigration reform. many depends on what kind of immigration reform. they could favor immigration reform that brings in large number of people driving down the wage rate who don't become citizens for an awfully long time and stop the hugest big government project i can think of which is building a useless wall between america and mexico. there's nothing conservative actually about the immigration, the nature of the immigration conversation. >> congressman i want you to respond to that. i want to talk about the devil in the details. where we are in the house and counter pose to where we are on guns right after we take a break. u can't go wrong loving i. vo: from the classic lines u can't go wrong loving i. to the elegant
for liberty and human dignity. a tale that was carried from slavery through the civil rights movement into today. for generations, this promise helped people weather poverty and persecution, while holding on to the hope that a better day was on the horizon. for me, personally, growing up in far-flung parts of the world and without firm roots, the story spoke to a yearning within every human being for a home. of course, even as we draw strength from the story of god's will and his gift of freedom, expressed on passover, we also know that here on earth, we must bear our responsibilities in an imperfect world. that means accepting our measure of sacrifice and struggle, just like previous generations. it mean us working, through generation after generation on behalf of that ideal of freedom. as dr. martin luther king said on the day before he was killed, i may not get there with you, but i want you to know that we as a people will get to the promised land. so just as joshua carried on after moses, the work goes on for all of you, the joshua generation. for justice and dignity, for opportu
. >> congressman john lewis and olympic gold medalist share their experiences during the civil right movement live, saturday at 8 p.m. eastern, part of booktv on c-span 2. continues. journal" host: white house correspondent, thank you for being here. gun control. we saw a couple of things happen in the senate this week area leader reid, the head of the democrats in the senate is coming out now with a proposal, a gun bill. guest: his abilities going to of -- include the pillar his efforts, which is universal background checks. currently, it is against the law to purchase a gun if you are a criminal or have a dangerous record but not all require background checks. democrats are trying to put forward a bill that requires universal background checks. that has been the top priority for president obama. this bill will not include the assault weapons ban, which would ban certain types of high- capacity assault rifles and other weapons. there was not enough support in the senate to feel like that was possible to include and be able to pass the floor in the senate. it is a bit of a blow to the president ag
. this is not democracy. this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is first of all we set this thing up to where we supported the shiites and the sunnis are now -- there is going to be a version of a civil war. right now, as we speak here live on cnn there is an alternate reality on another network. they are over there today saying how great it is. iraq's free. >> you mean fox. >> yes. i don't really want to, you know, disparage. >> let me read this tweet from donald rumsfeld. the iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. >> he's a war criminal as far as i'm concerned. i don't understand why he, bush, cheney are walking the streets. the way they are trying to revise history saying it was a mistake or we were given bad information. say nobody sent me an e-mail or a tweet that said goldman sachs downtown right now in their basement they havethey are holding them there. i tell the police this. what will happen to me when they go down to goldman sachs and find no kids many n the basement? of course, you would think i would want to go after goldman sachs as bush wanted to go after saddam.
and the sewnries -- now there's going to be a version of a civil war. right now as we speak here live on cnn, there's an alternate reality taking place on another network, and they are over there today saying how great it is. iraq's free. >> you mean fox. >> i don't really want to disparage them by name. >> donald rumsfeld, ten years ago, became long difficult work, all who played a role in history deserve our respect and appreciation. >> well, he's a war criminal as far as i'm concerned. i don't understand why he, bush, cheney, wolfowitz are still walking the street. the way they are trying to revise history now is by saying, well, it was a mistake or we were given bad information. you know, let's say somebody sent a tweet to us right now or sent me an e-mail that said goldman sachs downtown right now in their basement, they have kidnapped children, and they are holding them there, and i then tell the police this. what will happen to me when they go down to goldman sachs and find out that there's actually no kids kidnapped in the basement of goldman sachs, and, of course, you would think i would w
to draw a parallel basically between the african-american civil rights movement and a rooabin and his efforts. president obama is trying to balance outreach to israel with his push towards trying to restart a stalled peace process between the israelis and palestinians. he's expected to travel into the occupied palestinian territories, into the west bank soon, to visit bethlehem. of course, we all know christians believe this to be the birthplace of jesus christ. visiting the church of the holy nativity, he'll be there with the palestinian authority president, mahmoud abbas, and he'll have to pass through those huge security barriers. there's enormous walls that the israelis have set up around this traditionally christian city. and perhaps get a good look at some of the conditions that the palestinians live in. part of this is probably to try to raise some awareness about the christian palestinian population, very much caught in the middle of this grinding conflict between the israelis and the palestinians. zoraida? >> ivan watson live from amman, jordan, this morning. thank you. >>> c
argue in the civil rights movement and the vit vietnam war when you had this level of mass protest, it was relatively unprecedented in the history of that. no, ma'am one had ever seen a million people on the mall in washington before. this was a new -- this was a really new thing. >> yeah. >> i would argue in the time since, we have had a million people marching on washington for just about everything you could -- you could imagine, and the power of mass protest in this age in a practicingmented age to move things and the challenge to respond is impactful. you are seeing young people starting more businesses than ever before, trying to address things like that, they say we will start alternative energy companies. you are seeing people go at and try to create direct solutions to challenges as opposed to, you know, kind of rallying it. >> don't you think there is a difference between trying to do something on facebook or trying to do something on twitter and actually out there getting your hands dirty? >> sure. but i think there is also, you know, th
out for human rights. let's support same sex civil union. for the first time in six years they voted him down. he got everything else through as head of that conference. they voted against him which means that most the bishops in that room were less progressive than pope francis on this issue. >> which is pretty incredible. by the way, for some people that may be surprised what civil unions get him is you can have civil unions and you don't have to use the term marry or have a religious ceremony. >> right. obviously the church is not ready for that, nor would pope francis be ready for that. he wanted to respect human rights. that's the real surprise here that people say he's anti-gay. can you be anti-gay marriage and not be anti-gay. i think there is a distinction here. he is moderate in this issue. >> it's an interesting point. i don't know that everyone would agree with you on that issue of whether you can be anti-gay, anti-gay marriage. but you're trying to draw that distinction, right? >> i think so. there is a distinction to be made. first of all, i don't think we should have he

to teach him how to use this stuff. this cannot be right in a civilized society. >> first of all, piers, it's not that i oppose the ban. what i do support is a more healthy debate about the ban, and whatever our legislature, whether state or federal, comes out with, i will support. i'm not a gun person, personally. but i do believe that all sides of the issue need to be focused on and there's other issues that need to be addressed also. mental health checks, access for us. that would be part of the background process. having mental health checks to find out if there's issues within the home. knowing who has these types of weapons. another thing that concerns me is when someone does die who does have weapons. but we're not notified that there are weapons in the home. who takes possession of those weapons for the short term until it's decided who they should go to? then they end up on the streets. so those are the things that i'm concerned about. and i just think that we have to have a really thorough debate about the issue. >> i thoroughly agree with that. and this is a very constructive one

of their civil war was using chemical weapons doesn't need to be a priority right now. >> for once i agree with the president, laying the marker down. the united states of america has never sat on the sidelines when people have created this type of chaos against their own people so i think certainly senator mccain and senator graham along with the president have laid a marker down what is proper and right. this is a serious thing. when people use chemical weapons against themselves, what else will they use against their neighbors. i think the president was correct, he was right, it's very serious and something that should concern the american public. we're certainly weary of war and conflicts, but we're a country that looks out. >> topic two, senator harry reid, a democrat, is dropping a proposed ban on assault weapons from a new gun control bill because he says it has no chance, zero -- i kooechbt get it out. it has zero chance of passing but reid says another senator could bring it up as an amendment in the future. in a recent abc news/washington post poll, 57% of americans say they supp
